New updates on Maya Rudolph's variety show special have emerged. Titled "The Maya Rudolph Show", the one-hour special which will serve as a pilot for a possible ongoing version is set to air May 19 at 10 P.M. on NBC.
Guest list for the show has also been revealed. Rudolph's fellow "Saturday Night Live" alumni Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen, Kristen Bell, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson and Sean Hayes will appear as guests, with Janelle Monae as musical performer and Raphael Saadiq serving as bandleader.
